Now read: http://marc.merlins.org/netrants/reply-to-useful.html
and remember, this is a group discussion list, not a public
questions/private answers list. There is infrequently any need for
private replies to posters of such lists. It benefits the group greatly
to have most answers available to all subscribers. As a consequence, the
ease with which the exceptions may reply privately or not is simply not
The part of the "problem" that is about "where should the default answer
go to" is totally debateable i agree. There are good arguments for both
sides and i wouldnt like to decide based on them.
You and the author of that page forget one thing. Its impossible to set
a reply to if the list adds one. The mailinglist software has to remove
all reply-to headers first and the insert the list one. So if i want
answers only to some mailbox (there are tons of reasons to do so)
reply-to munging makes this impossible.
P.S. That the page cites the wrong (old) RFC is there too but oh well..
